Union Pearson Express Electrification Environmental Assessment Public Open Houses
Electrification of Union Pearson (UP) Express is part of The Big Move, Metrolinx’s regional transportation plan to dramatically improve how people move in the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area.
Metrolinx and Hydro One Networks Inc. invite you to their joint Public Open Houses to learn more about the plans to electrify UP Express. At the Open House, interested members of the community can receive a project update and provide feedback on the preliminary design components, environmental effects and mitigation and next steps/timelines.
The UP Express route and proposed locations for electrification components are shown on the map below.
The Open Houses will provide you with an opportunity to view displays and speak one-on-one with project staff.
We look forward to seeing you there.

NOTICE OF COMMENCEMENT
Union Pearson Express Electrification Environmental Assessment
Date: November 5th, 2013
Location: Casa da Madeira,
1621 Dupont St. W.
This community meeting is an opportunity for residents to learn about the development at 299 Campbell Avenue. An important part of this project is the exciting potential to expand the Perth-Dupont Library. This meeting will provide updates on the project and gain important community feedback. Join me and local residents on November 5th as we review this new development and opportunities to expand this community library.
I am not a parent but here is a question I would ask parents and others. As I sit looking out of my office at the busy morning and afternoon traffic, plus construction traffic, at Perth and Wallace I ask myself why does the second busiest (and soon to be busier) intersection in JT not have a crossing guard? I have asked people about this and nobody seems to know. I think it is worth asking especially with so many little folk in the area now. I have left messages with our school trustee but she has never called me back.
Please join Perth Avenue P.S. And St. Luigi Catholic School for a fun filled festival.
Thursday September 26 in the playground from 3:15 until 7:00 p.m.
There will be many exciting games for children to participate in as well as bouncy castles, Cotton Candy and Popcorn. Also, we will be BBQ'ing hot dogs and serving refreshments. Anyone can join in and there will be tickets to buy at the schoolground. Special bonus is the great raffle draw items, fun cake walk, and a bake sale.

The Fourth Annual Art Spin Exhibition
158 Sterling Rd. (West of Lansdowne, North of Dundas)
Opening Reception Thursday August 29th , 7pm - 1am
Exhibition runs August 30th - September 1st
Hours are 12-7pm Friday and Saturday, 12-5pm Sunday
Built in 1920, the Tower Automotive building had an industrious history in aluminum, sheet-casting and automotive parts. In 2005 it was designated a heritage site and then shortly thereafter, closed. For years the ten story historic structure sat abandoned, occasionally accessed by trespassing graffiti artists, photographers and urban explorers alike.
The Fourth Annual Art Spin Exhibition takes its cue from the building it occupies, featuring works that explore its industrial heritage and history of neglect and decay while highlighting the disappearance of Toronto’s industrial past.
This group exhibition curated by Layne Hinton and Rui Pimenta of Art Spin features works in various mediums including site-specific installation, sculpture, painting, photography, new media, and performance art.
